— “Echoes of Ireland," a play written and directed by Brian C. Petti, is coming to the Goshen Music Hall on June 21 and 22.

It presents the sweep of the Irish experience, from County Cork to New York City, as it explores family ties and the immigrant life in America.

"Echoes" is a series of inter-related monologues that follows the saga of a single Irish family, the Cunyngham clan, from 1860, five years after the end of the potato famine in Ireland, all the way through 2001.

Karen Coakley, the mayor of Skibbereen, County Cork, Ireland, called it "powerful...every emotion came to the fore during this story of pride and determination in the face of adversity."

Petti, who's from Ellenville, has had his plays produced Off-Off Broadway (Masquerade, The Love Song of Sidney J. Stein, Banshee) and regionally ("Next Year in Jerusalem," "The Measure of a Man," "On the Expectation of White Christmases") by such companies as Ten Grand Productions, The American Theater of Actors and The Fresh Fruit Festival. "Masquerade" was staged at Cherry Lane Theater in New York City and "Next Year in Jerusalem" was the winner of the Humboldt State University National Play Contest in California, where it received a student production.
